NIKKATSU

[ Story ]

Written by Kohan Kawauchi, "Tokyo Drifter" illustrates an immaculate array of Suzuki aesthetics, switching at a fast pace between dry humor and intense action scenes. Starring Tetsuya Watari, it is highly acclaimed by Hollywood directors Quentin Tarantino, Nicolas Refn, Damien Chazelle and Japanese movie lovers alike.
"Don't piss me off!" Testsuya Hondo (Tetsuya Watari), otherwise known as "Tetsu the Phoenix", is surrounded by some thugs. Tetsu is a member of the Kurata gang which had recently turned straight by starting a real estate business – but the rivaling Otsuka gang does not like this at all. Despite Tetsu's effort to remain passive, Otsuka's gangs will not leave him alone.
